Want to get a taste of real rally cars right in your back yard? The Ledwidge Lookoff Rally is back for 2014! The Ledwidge Lookoff Rally is a fully sanctioned performance motorsport event held August 23rd and 24th, starting in Dartmouth! Teams and their cars will compete on a variety of surfaces throughout the two days testing their skill and their vehicles!
On August 23rd the action for the public begins at Dartmouth Crossing from 3-5 pm at the corner of Countryview Drive and McClure Close. All of the cars will be on display and you can meet the drivers and co-drivers. After that the rally kicks off a short 10 minute drive away in the Conrad Brothers Quarry at 6pm where the teams will complete their first three competitive stages. Spectators can view the entire stage for free from a convenient elevated position with great views of all the action! Following the full rally cars will be an exhibition event of Amateur RallyCross competitors who have been invited to try out the stages.
Sunday the event moves to the Noel Shore where all of the rally competitors will complete another 100 full kilomteres of highly technical, fast competitive stages vying for the fastest time over the entire event! This is the biggest rally to be held in the Maritimes in over 20 years!
More information is available on the event website at http://www.lookoffrally.com including directions, spectator information and photos/videos from previous years.
Want to be more involved? Rally events require a lot of preparation and help and we can use all interested volunteers! Workers are needed for Saturday in Dartmouth from 5 to 8pm and Sunday from 8am to 5pm in the Noel shore. All workers will receive an event T-Shirt and those helping out on Sunday will be provided a free catered lunch by Quiznos Subs. No experience at all is necessary and you will be provided all the information and direction you require. You’ll have the best seat in the house and this is the only way to spectate for the action on Sunday! For more details see the ‘Workers’ section of the Rally Website at http://www.lookoffrally.com
